, there is a solution to this problem and that would be for people to pay in advance. governments could have an emergency fund instead of spending all their money every year. they could be prepared partly for their emergencies. the federal government could play this because they could set up a fund for disasters and they could set up which would be used to handle disasters so that all this emotion that we just described could not be used to manipulate and take money from people that have earned it. but then they got a lot more than the actual cost of the problem. neil: what worries me is that hurricane sandy was different in a the most severe storm, certainly for the northeast. so how they came up with the $60 billion based a bigger question, whether the governor is handed that figure and adding insult to agony here. they also provided for those in need. >> yes, shortly after the disaster, the figures are going to several decimal points out what they need. nobody really knows exactly what the right amount of it. but we have always advocated for is let's start early and incrementally. instead

of these lawsuits? >> he will pay back some. he will settle. the government settles these sort of cases. let's say he loses 50 million bucks, he still has a fair amount. he's not going to starve. more importantly, he will have his narrative back, his life as a competitive athlete back. the question is, is he going to apologize to the people he hurt along the way? we talk about this as if he's the only part of the story. in fact, he's not. the story is much bigger than just him. >> he has great pr. but, as you and i talked about before, juliette, he was a jerk to an awful lot of people. i mean, he sought to destroy people who would testify against him, who had spoken the truth. >> i think jerk is an understatement. i think a lot of those people are devastated right now. and i don't really know what to think when he's calling some of these people up to apologize. i actually spoke to a few people he has reached out to and they're like dumbfounded. they don't know whether to believe him or not. >> did you see him threaten people, reporters who reported things that he felt were inappropriate? >> well,
